Full-Time Senior Industrial Designer – iRobot Corporation (Rhino, Pro/E, SolidWorks)

iRobot Corporation – Posted by joballianceBoston, Massachusetts, United States


Job Description

We’re looking for a highly talented Senior Industrial Designer to join our User Experience team at iRobot. You will help reinforce the high standards for our group – your credibility makes you a sought out voice whenever there is a critical product decision that impacts what the customer sees and experiences. As we expand beyond Roomba, towards a holistic vision of how connected Robots can improve our lives inside and outside the home, the UX team is key to delivering on this vision – with designs that embrace simplicity, approachability and seamless usability as a means of humanizing robotic technology. This is an exciting time and we are a relatively new team of skilled designers and researchers in the process of building a world-class internal design competency.

Hard Skills

You have 5-10 years of relevant design experience, ideally designing complex electro-mechanical devices
You relish technical realities as part of the challenge in creating great, meaningful design; and your portfolio shows beautiful examples of mass-produced technical/consumer products
You have enviable sketching skills to quickly capture ideas and you are expert in helping teams explore what technical decisions mean for the physical design and usability of a product
You are well-versed in manufacturing methods and use this knowledge as a creative asset rather than limitation
You can sweat over details (& design specs) because you know getting that last detail through to production is part of the journey
You’re adept at CAD (Rhino, Pro-E, Solidworks) and visualization tools (Creative Suite), and expertly use this to communicate ideas and gain alignment with engineering & product stakeholders

Soft Skills

You develop relevant, inspiring designs that reinforce the brand and create a lasting impression on users
You are self-driven but collaborate well within the team as well as engineering and marketing
Your design approach is inspired by the user, and you can work closely with User Research to inform and validate design work
You know when to push and when to compromise
You can discuss with credibility why your design advances the ‘big picture’
You excel in asking smart questions and look for boundaries so you can also offer perspectives beyond what is being asked

If the above descriptions resonate, we’d like to hear from you!
Please provide link to your portfolio with resume.
